Secured Fireplace Safety Screen

Secured Fireplace Safety Screen

This Fireplace Safety Screen unlike the regular screens will not fall fall over on your child.

The problem of children burning themselves on gas inserts is so great that new regulations for Jan 2015 require all new inserts will be required to come with a protective safety screen. This screen will provide you with that protection if you have an older insert.

The screen also prevents curious children from running fingers along the sharp edges of the vent fins, experimenting with crevices and finding the entrance to the electrical controls (parents often did not know existed) or crawling inside an open box of a traditional wood fireplace. Custom made to your specific measurement, it looks like a regular wire mesh screen but your baby can not pull it down on them.

  • Made by a grandfather in the business of custom fireplace doors and screens, who wanted to protect his grandson.
  • Secures to the metal frame of your electric or gas insert with magnets securely welded to the screen with no risk of small loose magnets coming off for a child to find and put in their mouth.
  • The Magnet fixtures make it difficult for a young child to move or tip the screen over but adults have the strength to be able to pry it away to have easy access.
  • No need to screw anything or make a change to the look of your fireplace.
  • If you do not have metal around your opening of the firebox and the surface framing it is mostly smooth (ie marble) the screen can also come with adhesive metal strips, see picture. Stick these around the opening and secure the screen's magnets to them.
  • Use the fireplace with the baby in the room. The metal mesh will get warm but not enough to burn if they touch.
  • Screen is made of coated chain mesh that provides a greater surface area, making it much cooler than fireplace glass which can reach 400- 600 degrees.
  • The physical properties of the chain link placed a minimum of a recommended 6 inches away, allows for air circulation to dissapate the heat. You can also choose to have your screen made a greater distance out.
  • The manufacturer stands behind the screen with a satisfaction and lifetime warranty on workmanship. 

Note: Not appropriate for open wood burning inserts or fireplaces. The screen itself would get hot. Only appropriate for wood burning inserts that are basically unused with children in the room and if looking to protect them from exploring or falling against hard protruding parts of grates. It is better to gate wood burning fireplaces. See Auto-Closing Hearth Gate
